Classes Begin Fall Semester

20140603 welding2Your welding career...it starts right here at WSCC! "The demand for qualified welders is higher than ever, largely due to the shale industry moving into the area," Kent Hall, WSCC Professor, Industrial Technology said. Local industries like Pioneer Pipe, Hi-Vac (Alliance), Solvay, Therma-Fisher, and Skuttle Manufacturing to name a few, will be looking for those who are able to fill welding positions. Other local industries that supply equipment and services to oil companies are also looking for welders. In response to the industry's need, Washington State Community College (WSCC) has built a new state-of-the-art welding lab and developed a new welding program; the curriculum is based on the input of these companies. The one-year welding certificate includes stick (shielded metal arc welding), MIG (gas metal arc welding; metal, inert gas), TIG (gas tungsten arc welding; tungsten, inert gas), plate and pipe welding, as well as set-up techniques. Safety and hands-on experience are priorities throughout the new WSCC welding program.
